The Department of Defense reports he was born on December 13, 1983, in Kokan , Uzbekistan.

According to the Washington Post Shakrukh was an 18 year old refugee when he was captured by bounty hunters and sold the USA.[2]

Hamiduva was among the 60% of prisoners who participated in the tribunal hearings.[3] A Summary of Evidence memo was prepared for the tribunal of each detainee.

Hamiduva's memo accused him of the following:[4]

a. The detainee is associated with forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners.
  1. Originally from Uzbekistan, the detainee traveled to Kabul, Afghanistan via Dushanbe, Tajikistan, and Konduz, Afghanistan.

  3. The detainee willingly became a soldier in the Mujahideen Army.

  5. The detainee had an AK-47 while at the camp near Dushanbe, Tajikistan.

  7. The Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan is a designated foreign terrorist organization.
  8. The detainee was captured by the Northern Alliance in Mazar-E-Sharif.

Habeas petition

Shakhrukh Hamiduva has had a habeas corpus petition filed on his behalf.[5]

There is no record that any Administrative Review Board hearings were held to review whether Shakrukh could be transferred. The New York Times reports that, as of September 1, 2009, Shakrukh remains in Guantanamo.[6]

Transfer to Ireland

Shakhrukh Hamiduva and fellow Uzbekistani Oybek Jabbarov were transferred to Ireland on September 26, 2009.[7][8] Initially both men's names were withheld. On September 27 the Associated Press reported that one of the men was "Oybek Jabbarov".[9] Ireland had been discussing accepting the transfer of some Guantanamo detainees for several months prior to the September 26, 2009 announcement that two Uzbek detainees had been transferred. Dermot Ahern, the Irish Minister of Justice, asked reporters to respect the men's privacy.

The Irish Times continues to report on the integration of Hamiduva and Jabbarov back into society, reporting on September 30, 2009 that the Irish government has prepared a "10-week series of intensive courses in civics, cookery and other subjects."[10] After five years of residency the two men will be eligible to apply for Irish citizenship.
